I've a fancy to drive in Norway... looks great, but damn cold ...
It varies alot..but as i said, 5C and up aint no problem with roof down, if you have heated seats! :D
In july/august it can be 30C and 20C over the alps.
Ok so now I'm properly tempted

I've just come back from 2000 mile, 8 days in Pyrenees, so planning the next trip.

From your local knowledge, what are the best routes and passes and areas to head to.

Pm if easier

Hi!
Iv been touching the Pyreneens with motorcycle.
Any pictures from your trip?
Norway: to drive alpines and fjord Vestlandet is the area to head to, and here is my list of the best areas within:
Trollstigen: start early morning from Åndalsnes, then you dont meet all the busses.
Head to Geiranger and eat lunch down by the fjord and the cruiseships. Then drive up to Dalsnibba and just inhale the view. Then to Lom, further over Sognefjell and if your lucky you can wath skiiers from Fantestein. Then take Tindevegen to Øvre Årdal, further to Lærdal, and do not drive through the 24km tunell, but over it! Its called the Norwegian snowroad. Head to Voss and over the Hardangerbridge and down to Odda. Then up to Haukeli and down Setesdal and over to Lysebotn. Take the touristferry towards Stavanger, but go of with the car and drive up to Prekestolen and walk to it!
End up in Stavanger for a hotel, beer and just walk around! ☺️

Hmm... Tempted to do this trip too. Only been at the last two pictures. Lysebotn is just a couple of hours drive from where I live...
Would have been fun to gather some Z4s to make this journey together.

Here is a pic from a nice drive to Lysebotn in May 2014:

And another in 2015 with some friends:
